This is an absolutely classic root beer recipe that is simple and comforting. The addition of fresh lemon and lime juice makes it even better and adds a nice citrus taste. It is great to drink on a warm summer day and is a great thirst-quencher.
The recipe is from the brilliant but ever-changing Facebook page “Dr. Brown’s Root Beer Recipes” and while they are a little outdated right now, I think it’s a good time to put my money where my mouth is and try this one.
One of the main reasons that Dr. Browns is so successful is that he’s a really good blender. The recipes are simple and they are made of things that are actually good to eat. The fact that they are easy to make and will last for years is the main reason why I’m always happy to buy them from him. And the fact that they are so tasty is the main reason why I’m buying this one.
And what better recipe to have than a root beer float? You just mix the juice from a vanilla bean with the sugar to make a sweet root beer float. You could do this with a lot of different ingredients, but I think this is the one that really works.
The root beer is pretty easy to make as well. You can use a 1-gallon Mason jar, or a 1-gallon Ziploc bag, or even an empty bottle. Just mix some fruit juice, a bit of sugar, and a dash of vanilla extract into a blender. If you don’t have a blender just mix the fruit juice, sugar, and vanilla extract with a fork or a spoon.
The only thing I would change is the way you would pour it. I would add a bit of ice to the blender, to chill the drink. Also, I would add some ice cubes to the blender.
I think it’s pretty sweet. I used to make root beer before I discovered these awesome gadgets. They were really hard to get right, but I just would mix the fruit juice, sugar, and vanilla extract, and then pour the finished drink into an empty Mason jar.
That’s great for making a big batch of root beer, but for a quick drink, you can get great root beer with a small mason jar. You can make root beer in any size mason jar. Just fill it about half way with the mixture, then add ice. Pour the rest of the mixture into the jar, then fill the rest of the jar with ice cubes. Put ice in the fridge and just chill the drink, then enjoy the root beer.
When it comes to root beers, the mason jar is a good idea because they generally have to be refrigerated for long periods of time. If they have to be refrigerated for extended periods of time, there will be a lot of sediment in the root beer.
In the case of root beers, there tends to be a lot of sediment, and that sediment is very acidic. Although root beer is a beer made from the fruit of the pomegranate, it is usually acidic, and tastes like lemonade.
